General Details

“RADIANT” is one of the very popular 44 foot (50 foot length overall) ketches that were designed by John Cherubini. These 44' yachts were inspired by two L. Francis Herreshoff designs: The 57 foot ketch “Bounty” (ex TIOGA) and 72 foot ketch TICONDEROGA (also an x TIOGA). Cherubini was inspired by both of these well known classic yachts and he wanted to create something in the same vein that would be smaller and easier for a couple or family to cruise and maintain.

The Cherubini 44 is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful and finely crafted ocean going sailing yachts. Her cutter ketch rig allows for many sail configurations for any possible sea state. The Cherubini has elegant lines starting from her proud bow sprit back to her elegant teak trimmed rudder. Her full keel gives her a smooth ride in any ocean. Beautiful teak combings and trim with great varnished gloss only add to her beauty and give a hint to the grace of the finish work you will find below. This boat anxiously awaits her next owner to stretch her legs and take a passage to wherever the wind takes them!!
